I was determined to slot writing time into my schedule for the rest of my life, no matter how hectic it became, and believe me, it’s been hectic. The hecknicity* was incredibly intense over the weekend. Hence, I lost a little in my faith in myself.
Sure, the Stewarts are on vacation, and I’m not writing. It’s just that right now my fingers itch to write and I do. not. have. time.
Tyres will be ordered tomorrow. Car repairs that Richard cannot handle will be scheduled for early next week. THEN, we’re on!
The Stewarts will meet me probably on the 16th, and we’ll pick up on our research and discuss what elements apply.
Are you ready for Banned Book Month? Are you psyched for the Write A Banned Book event on Writer Connect? I am! I will participate. I’ll have a couple of weeks to pull together my plan and strategies, and then it’s a full out run for 30 days. After that, despite the wedding, I’m going to give NaNoWriMo all I’ve got in November. 50,000 words will probably be half of The Nothing Man.
Note the new word I learned below. I thought I made it up, but lo and behold, I didn’t!
